I got these clay soldiers today and have looked for them online but can't find them. I was wondering if you could tell me what they are and how old they are. They are made of clay and have a heavy blue glaze on them. They are marked Italy on the bottom of them. I have found nothing about them. Here are some pictures Thank you for any information you can give.

Many doll heads are made of composition and filled with horsehair or sawdust or other filler. I've never heard of a coconut being used but I guess it could.  The red dot on her forehead is a sign of a Hindu or Buddhist woman. It has many meanings.  I've never seen a Hindu or Buddhist woman with blonde hair, but anything is possible!

Comment by Maggie Heiser on April 20, 2017 at 9:05am

Just not sure looking for knowledge.

This item seems to be made of a fiber material perhaps coconut and has a hole in the top.

HEY NEWBIES, Mouse over those ugly generic avatars, follow simple instructions and post pictures of yourself or something that IDs you or your business,

John, and  others:  To the right of your Post is a "bold X", click on it to terminate that reply.

John, no offense but most of us sleuths like the challenge of identifying stuff but pricing it is up to you. Values depend on age, rarity, condition, supply,  demand and  who or where it was made.

Once your item has been identified, you can check auction sites and make your own determination of value.

I used to provide values, but many arguments arose because most owners believed their item was special and worth more than I suggested.

In checking eBay use their menu to check "Sold items".

Another reliquary ?

Measures approximately 2 3/4" x 2 1/4" x 3/8".

Comment by Roseanne McLoughlin on February 27, 2017 at 12:15pm

Yes, I know it's called a Secretary.  I used the word desk because most people are more familiar with that.  Thanks for the tips about where to post it.

Comment by Fred Silva on February 27, 2017 at 6:38am

Roseanne , mahogany is not a great seller. Most dark wood and maple does not sell well anymore. Something this nice could bring $100 to $300 +or - depending on area of country you live in. I would suggest an ad in The Antiques and The Arts Weekly for best result for selling this Plantation drop front desk 

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on February 27, 2017 at 4:04am

Roseanne, it would be better if you posted this in Discussions, you have it in Comments Wall.  As people reply your Post falls off the cliff into cyber space.

Click, "+Add a Discussion" above.

It's called a Secretary, not a desk. More pics would help.
